Updated Covid 19 Response – June 1, 2020
As the province of Alberta ‘re-launches’ its business and social enterprises the restrictions upon groups connecting are easing. However, the guidelines and protocols of re-entering our facility and our previous ministry practices will not allow various essential parts of worship to return ie. Church School, congregational singing, coffee and fellowship time. As such Maranatha YYC has decided to continue our current path until we are better able to worship and minister more collectively. We anticipate greater freedoms as the year progresses and will re-assess at that time.
We continue to focus on the truth that, social distancing is not spiritual distancing and that Maranatha YYC is not just a building but an organization of God’s people. We are determined that while we may not gather at the church, we will still gather as a church as therefore we will continue to
- worship God
- be discipled into God’s people
- fellowship as God’s people
- serve the many needs of God’s world as God’s people through stewardly living and giving.
To accomplish these goals – our worship has moved into a digital world with services live-streamed and many of our ministry engagements are still active through online meetings and other electronic means. In addition, we have bolstered our communications efforts with increased roles of social media and other cyber communications etc. to reaching out both our members and the world around us. This includes adding to our resources in order to best serve not only our faith community but all who are seeking our God as well.
We remain available through our membership, our leadership and our staff to serve if and when and how we can. Feel free to contact us and see where we can be the hands and feet of Jesus for you.
